Shy – 30×24 Mixed Media on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum
Another experiment, this time with fabric. I think it really works. in fact, I think I want to play with fabric more! this was more or less an accident. I had something else planned for this piece, another superimposed pastel figure, but the positioning was off and I couldn’t get it to work, the effect wasn’t coming across. so I tried other ideas, over and over again until I finally remembered that my original concept was centered around modesty. she was hiding, or trying to and an image came to me of sheets and bed and I remembered that I wanted to try this fabric draping technique. I’m pretty pleased with how it came out in the end – what do you think?
this whole series seems to be about experimenting and playing with my media. they are very mixed pieces and I think there is a sense of fun to them as well. I had fun anyway. this one was particularly messy, there was medium everywhere! I think I definitely want to try more fabric though, I forgot how much fun it is to work with your hands!
